Care Philosophy

Once I saw what ophthalmology was all about, I was intrigued. It was exciting to know I could change people's vision. When I meet a new patient, my primary goal is to understand why it is they're here to see me. I can only do that by learning a little bit about who they are. I try to be very approachable and listen to them so I can ensure that all of their questions are answered and they'll get the treatment they came for.Read more

Dr. Gillian Says:

The physicians and staff at Georgia Eye Associates take great care to gather and evaluate patient feedback. We value our patients' opinions and use the survey as a tool to constantly improve the care we provide. We make every effort to ensure that each and every patient walks out of our office seeing and feeling their very best.

WARNING! I had blepharoplasty surgery with Dr. Gillian less than 1 yr ago. I have excessive scare tissue on the outer corners of my eyes. The inside corners of my lids have excessive sagging skin. Eyes are not symmetric (they were prior to the surgery). Scars on my lids are very lumpy and the sagging skin on my lids cover my eyeliner. He offered to correct some of the issues, but considering the terrible mess he left me with I declined. Insurance will not cover procedure again, I have to pay.

My recent cataract surgery exceeded my expectations! Dr. Gillian advised me that Torik lenses may not be the best choice for me due to irregularity in my eye. I took his recommendation to use standard lenses and the results are fantastic and I saved $2400 in extra charges for the Torik lens. Dr. Gillian explained everything in detail and answered all of my questions. I definitely would recommend Dr. Gillian to anyone in need of eye surgery.

Dr. Gillian says...

I have been treating patients with a wide variety of conditions for many years . I stay up to date on the latest technology so I can provide the best care possible. I make every effort to truly listen to my patients to understand their symptoms and concerns, then together we decide on a treatment plan.

Dr. Gillian says...

Personally I have done thousands of surgeries in my career, and I have seen every spectrum of healing and outcome results. I let my surgery patients know that anxiety is completely normal. I also let them know I have the best staff available and that we use the most innovative technology out there today. Now with premium lens implants, patients can see up close, mid-range and long distance with clarity after cataract surgery without the need for glasses.
